These workshops are for people working in licensed child care centres or licensed family child care homes only.

In the hustle and bustle of the daily routine in a child care centre it can be challenging to take a moment and just breathe…  This workshop is an introduction to the basics of mindfulness, providing staff an opportunity to learn to use the 5 senses in a variety of ways to engage children with the world around them.  Through videos and activities we will share ideas to help children learn how to make mindful choices, be regulated and get back to calm.
